The Mexican (2001)
Critic Consensus: Though The Mexican makes a good attempt at originality, its ponderous length makes it wear out its welcome. Also, those looking forward to seeing Roberts and Pitt paired up may end up disappointed, as they are kept apart for most of the movie.

Critic Reviews for The Mexican
It just sits there, doing nothing that a competent made-for-cable movie with C-list stars couldn't do.
First pairing of Hollywood's beloved stars Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts is a mixed blessing in this mishmash of a movie, in which different genres and styles strenuously compete for our attention.
The Mexican coasts along throwing at us double-agent/double-crossings intrigue, witty one-liners, and some evocative scenery.
Habla usted mediocre movie?
The Mexican fails because the entire movie changes its tone from one moment to the next.
Audience Reviews for The Mexican
For all the bad things I had heard about this movie.... I have to disagree. It is not the best movie.... but it is good! Worth seeing!
Not quite the film I as expecting, so pleasantly surprised, Im not the biggest fan of Julia Roberts, but enjoyed this film regardless.
For me, the best role in this was that of James Gandolfini, perhaps a typecast sort of role for him but with a great twist.
A fun movie that never got the credit it deserves. The pairing of Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts was perfect, they have a great on screen chemistry. The story was extremely interesting and was original, not an average romantic comedy at all.
